2 new on 6M with 9K and 8P


Posted: July 13th, 2014 under 6M, Hamradio.

First qso in June came on the 4th. I worked FS/W6IZT on 20M CW. JY9FC was worked on 6M CW. ZA/PA2CHR was worked on 6M SSB. R7AL/5 was worked on 20M CW from iota EU-180. I’m not sure this one is valid though, according to some cluster spots, it is not.

On the 8th, I worked a small 6m opening. I worked I, LZ, HB9, DL and YO.

On the 9th, I worked F4FET/p on 20M SSB from EU-107. In the afternoon, I was lucky to catch 9K2MU on 6M CW for a new one on 6M. At the time of this writing, the qso was also confirmed on LoTW. Thank you Murtada!

On June 10th, I worked SA6G/7 on 20M CW from EU-137 for a new iota. RZ9DX/9/p was worked on 20M CW from AS-005 for a new iota.

On June 15th, I worked MS0WRC on 40M SSB from EU-092 for a new iota.

On July 1st, I worked 8P6SH on 6M SSB for a new one on 6M. I did hear FG and 9Y, but I didn’t call them, as I had worked them before.

On July 2nd, I did copy DU7/PA0HIP on 6M CW. I heard his cq in and out for several minutes, and I gave him a call. He responded, but I did not copy him when giving me a report. The signal had much qsb with some qrm on the side. That would have been a new one for me. Anyway, it was nice to hear DU on 6M.

On July 3rd, I had an opening to North-America late in the evening. I worked 19 qsoes with Alabama as a new state. YV4NN was copied for a few minutes after the opening to North-America, but he faded before I could work him. Earlier in the day, I did hear T6DD on 6M CW for a few minutes, but it was not enough for a qso. Pity, as it would have been a new one for me.

On July 4th, I worked EX9T on 6M CW in MN82 for a new grid. UN3GX was also worked on 6M CW.

#324 on LoTW with NH0J


Posted: June 11th, 2014 under Hamradio, LoTW.

I got this one confirmed only a few days after my contact back in May. That was #324 on LoTW only. I guess it will be quite some time until I get my next new one confirmed on LoTW. They are getting harder and harder to come by.

We have had a few 6M openings, but most of it has been to Europe. I haven't bothered working anything of it. On May 16th, I did copy A25GF for a few minutes. He faded before I could work him. On May 23rd I heard JY9FC weakly a few minutes. On May 25th, we had another 6M opening with several EA8 stations heard and some europeans. On May 31st, we had another opening, but not much of interest. I heard stations from SV5, GM, F, I, S5, G, SP, ES, HA, LZ, ER, EI, YO, SV1, OH, SV9, LY, OK and YL.

DX report from April


Posted: May 26th, 2014 under Hamradio, LoTW, Soundclips.

Wow, time flies way too fast these days. I'm not working much radio for the time being. Usually I'm chasing new islands or perhaps a new bandcountry here and there. Conditions has been up and down, and the 6M season has started again when I write this. Well, here is my report from April.

On April 3rd, I worked 9H5G/C6A on 12M SSB from NA-054 for a new iota. The qso was quickly confirmed via LoTW. VK9MT was worked on 20M CW for a new one on 20M.

On April 4th, I worked VK9MT on 17M CW, and it was a new one on 17M. Both VK9MT qsoes were confirmed on LoTW pretty quickly. The manager is M0URX, so I knew it would be a fast confirmation.

On April 5th, I worked 5J0X on 10M CW for a new one on 10M. This was confirmed quickly on LoTW. CW4R was worked on 10M SSB from SA-039 for a new iota.

On April 6th, I worked 9M2/R6AF/p on 40M CW from AS-046 for a new iota. He was easy to work on 40M CW, but I didn't manage to get him on 17M CW earlier that day. He had partial of my call, but signals were too weak.

On April 10th, I worked YB4IR/5 on 20M CW from OC-106 for a new iota.

On April 11th, I worked PJ4H on 30M CW for a new one on 30M. 7N2JZT/6 was worked on 12M CW from AS-024 for a new iota. JG8NQJ/JD1 was worked on 15M CW. ZL4PW was worked on 10M CW in the evening for a new one on 10M. I was quite surprised to hear his signal, and even more surprised that he could copy me.

On April 18th, I worked E20HHK/p on 15M CW from AS-145 for a new iota.

On April 19th, I worked KH8/DL6JGN on 30M CW again. He didn't have my call correct the first time. S79SD was worked on 15M cw for a new one on 15M. An LoTW confirmation came quickly for this one.

It's been quite a few weeks since my last post. Life has been busy. I have worked some radio, but just haven't gotten around to writing about it. Conditions has been quite good on the higher bands, and I could probably have worked much more. Anyway, here is my report for the month of March.
